    Incra 5000 miter sled

    Who has used it and who likes it? What would you pay for a used one in good condition? If you don't like it which one would you prefer?

    I have one, and like it a lot. Many people think that a fair price for used tools is half of the new price; that would put it at around $125.

    The optimist says the glass is half full.
    The pessimist says it's half empty.
    I say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

    thanks. He is asking a little more than that but its been for sale for about 10 days. I may make an offer on it. I have a habit of buying things I dont really need for my shop and I don't really need this but I seem to want it well enough.

    my friends advice was to buy it, put it with all the other tools I never use and then will all of them to him because he knows they will sell easily after I die because they will all be low use. HE feels my death would be a very sad event but getting my un used tools will ease his pain? Isn't he nice.

    True friend always thinks of you and your tools too.

    This is on my to-get list as well. I have seen these go on CL for over $200. I might as well buy new.

    My wife (Sharon) is always saying that when I die, it will be very easy for her to find a new man, just by advertising all the tools in my shop...

    Brent,

    That is truly a very sad thing. True, but sad.

    Enjoy,

    Keith,

    Get the incra. It's a dream.

    Brent,

    I tell Doorlink her next boyfriend will want all *different* tools. Then she'll have to go through the whole process again!

    Just that, alone, is enough to give her pause...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    I've got the 1000SE unit and I love it, the 5000 sled was. Very tempting, but I'd need somewhere to keep it, and space is at a premium in my shop.
    Best of luck!
